This seems like the kind of thing that could have been a pm instead of a public message.

Future warning to anyone elese not to try this.

He doesn't have PMs yet either.  I agree, it'd be better if I could, but that's not the way the machine works. 

 

The good news is that no one is darned to heck for not reading the rules.

I was asking for an opinion on what to buy, not an offer to buy directly from a member.  

 

I just read the rules a minute ago.  I don't think my post violated this.

 

I am trying to get better at surf fishing.  I see the threads I try to start asking for info get blocked.    IF you can't ask what's a good fishing reel on this forum, then what can you talk about on a fishing forum then...............

I was listing what I owned not to sell, but what new purchase would fill the gap in the arsenal.

The forum leaders here understand how we prefer to handle things here. When someone makes a post that is inappropriate or potentially inappropriate, what good is to tell just that one person? Beyond the fact the folks who can't use the BST Forum also can't send or receive PMs, it has long been policy here to handle things that happen in public in the threads where it happened so that EVERYONE can see what happened and understand why it was inappropriate or potentially inappropriate. Probably saved a hundred thousand PMs in the almost 20 years this site has been online :th:

His post read as if he was looking to purchase a reel here - he mentioned how he was sold on a specific model/brand and posted the max he would spend. I read it as if he was soliciting as well but will take his word that he was just looking for suggestions. Usually folks looking for suggestions haven't decided on a brand/model/size yet, but we all express ourselves differently...'Merica! ;)

The funny thing is, I'm not as cranky in making this kind of responsive post as I usta be.  TimS has calmed me down.  I think it has to do with those pills he sends me.
